Feaster made it clear in an interview that the 2nd was for Byron.... not burning Kotalik's contract. (In reality it was probably a bit of both...but it definitely wasn't Feaster giving a 2nd for 3million capspace)
So it was just Regehr for Butler?
And in no universe was Byron worth a 2nd at the time. Hell even now I wouldn't do it.
Any other team would have topped Butler. Regehr was in high regard.
It was about the money no matter what Feaster says. Obviously he's gonna misdirect it since he can't exactly say "we made that trade because we were cheap".
If Feaster is telling the truth and that's how he actually judges player talent then that's even worse.
